Mariners All-Star prediction no. 4 – Mitch Haniger
For my fourth All-Star prediction, I am going with Mitch Haniger. He and Kyle Seager are the only Mariners players to appear in an All-Star game and I think he can make his second mid-summer classic of his career.

Obviously, the veteran outfielder has missed a lot of time and has taken a long road back but he’s healthy and firing on all cylinders. The 30-year-old was off to a great start to Spring Training and has cooled down a bit, but his numbers are still promising.
He finished the Cactus League with a .234 average and .818 OPS. Haniger has also hit three home runs and driven in eight runs. The outfielder has also hit two doubles, one triple, and managed to keep his strikeouts down despite missing most of the 2019 season and the entire 2020 season.
I am hoping Mitch can get back to his 2018 All-Star ways. That year, he hit 26 home runs and hit for a .285 batting average which seems more than doable from Mitch Haniger when healthy. Let’s hope he can stay on the field this season and shows us what he’s been working on in the lab.
Now onto the final Mariners All-Star prediction.
